Dr. Sahai's research has focused on the physics and chemistry of mass-loss in dyingstars, using both spectroscopic and continuum techniques, radio and infraredwavelengths. He has over 80 published articles in these areas.
Dr. Sahai's currentfocus of research is on using NASA's Great Observatories (Hubble SpaceTelescope, Chandra X-Ray Observatory and Spitzer Space Telescope) to studydying stars with high angular resolution and/or at wavelengths only accesiblefrom space, and modeling of multiwavelength data for detailed object studies.
Dr. Sahai has contributed to the science justification for an infrared high-contrastcoronagraphic imaging camera to search for planetary and brown dwarf companionsaround nearby stars, and circumstellar matter in young, main-sequence and dyingstars, as part of the Design Reference Mission for the JWST. He is a memberof the Science Team for the ECLIPSE coronagraphic telescope concept for aDISCOVERY-class mission to search for extra-solar giant planets.
He is a fullmember of the American Astronomical Society and the International AstronomicalUnion, and a founding member of the European Astronomical Society.
